    Actor Paul Walker's father sues Porsche over fatal crash

(AP Photo/Andrew Medichini, File)



    Paul Walker's father sued Porsche for negligence and wrongful death Wednesday over the 2013 accident that killed the "Fast & Furious" star.


    Walker's father, who is the executor of his son's estate, filed the lawsuit claiming that the Porsche Carrera GT that his son was riding in lacked safety features that could have saved the actor's life.


    The lawsuit cites features included in other pending lawsuits against the automaker over the crash that might have saved the actor's life, including a stability control system, side-door reinforcements and a breakaway fuel line to help prevent the car from bursting into flames after a collision.

    Walker was on a break from filming the seventh film in the "Fast & Furious" franchise when he was killed. He was riding in the Carrera GT driven by friend and business associate Roger Rodas when the car spun out of control, struck three trees and burst into flames on a street in Santa Clarita, California.

    The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.

    Rodas' widow, Kristine, who has a pending claim against Porsche in federal court, also filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the carmaker in state court on Wednesday.

    An after-hours message sent to Porsche seeking comment was not immediately returned.

    The car company has denied in other lawsuits, including one filed by the actor's daughter, that it is responsible for Walker's death.

    On Nov. 12, Porsche stated in a court filing that the Carrera GT had been altered and improperly maintained and those factors contributed to the deaths of Walker and Rodas.

    The company also called Walker "a knowledgeable and sophisticated user of the 2005 Carrera GT," Porsche's lawyers stated in response to the lawsuit by Meadow Walker, the actor's daughter.

    Meadow Walker's attorney, Jeff Milam, criticized the filing, reiterating his claims that the car as sold was unsafe.

    "If Porsche had designed the car to include proper safety features, Paul would have survived, he would be filming 'Fast and Furious 8,' and Meadow Walker would have the father she adored," Milam wrote in a statement.

    None of the cases have yet been set for trial.


    Wednesday's lawsuit repeats a claim from Meadow Walker's case that the Porsche was traveling between 63 and 71 mph (101 to 114 kph) before it spun out of control.


    Investigators concluded the Porsche was going much faster — up to 94 mph (151 kph) — when it crashed.

    The investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and California Highway Patrol concluded that it was unsafe speed and not mechanical problems that caused the crash. That investigation was aided by engineers from Porsche, who evaluated the wreckage of the rare car.

    Walker, the star of the "Fast & Furious" film franchise, co-owned an auto racing team with Rodas named Always Evolving. Meadow Walker, 17, is the sole heir of his estate, which is controlled by the actor's father, Paul William Walker III.

    Walker's two brothers helped complete action scenes in "Furious 7," which earned more than $1.5 billion globally after it was released in April.

    Good luck with your lawsuit dipshit.
    Something tells me that Porsche has more than enough money to make the executor of some second rate actors estate look like a fool in court.

    The claim might hold water. It appears that the car was made of paper.
    Or maybe the driver was a stupid fucking asshole. I don't know. Good luck to him.

    We see this everyday....shitheads can't handle powerful cars...or in some cases, cars in general. It's like the old redneck cliche..."Hold my beer & watch this!" Suing Porsche because the driver was an idiot is like suing Craftsman when you bang your thumb with a hammer. Sorry....fuck you. By the way, is PW's family suing the driver as well?

    So his dad is basically saying it's okay for his son and friend to have acted like fuckards and speed down a public street because Porsche should of known they were going to do that with their psychic ablities? :facepalm:

    I'm guessing this has to be a last-ditch attempt to score some dough since all the guy's millions were left to his teenage daughter.

    His daughter is suing as well. Fucking ridiculous. Hey, I knew a dude who shot himself fucking around. Guess his fam should've sued the makers of the gun for not putting something on it to keep people from shooting themselves while acting like an irresponsible moron. How about that dickhead who put the fireworks on his head? His family should sue since the company didn't make their product so that when someone puts it on their head, it doesn't kill them. Paul wasn't just driving a car. He was driving it like a fucking idiot.

    Perfect example. Obviously driving to fast for the conditions. Improper tires. I hope Porsche has seen this. It will certainly bolster their case.

    Just found this picture, is that his fucking dead body?!?!?! If your going that fast in a vehicle, I don't have sympathy for you. And if Paul liked the rush of riding that fast, than he paid the ultimate price. His daughter is set for the rest of her life, fuck his parents lawsuit.
